OK, yeah, you're right. I *had tried this before and forgot what the results were. I thought I had pulled an end run around something by telling the system I was in I&A but still at post 149 and responding to that. Somewhere along that road I got an error message telling me I had my Java on upside down, or something like that.

Well, Mizz Liverwurst's old Netscape via this old Mac shows a thin blue line - the <space> thang - as the subject heading. Eminently clickable. Interesting. Maybe there is a reason to run a steam-powered computing machine after all!


Helen, you are vewwwy naughty.... hehehe

So that's what happened, tsuwm, when I tried to post a follow-up about Neanderthal on that Loanwords From German thread (this was a couple of months ago)...it kept accepting the post and appearing nowhere! I finally gave up looking for it!

I have an emachines computer, and I had no trouble accessing this thread once the "Re:'s" started showing up. I know this'll sound dumb to all you computer geniuses, but since you say only Macs could access this post, is my computer doing something out of the ordinary here, displaying super-human traits as it were?

I had no trouble getting into this post-- (well a little, it took a minute or two for me to find the magic spot--) and clit, oh i mean, click on it! and once i gave it some thought.. no more Blank Post but rather nothingness in the subject.

Ah, the thin blue line. Appropriate for a dyed-in-the-wool Confederate like yourself, Mizz Grits! [throws another dollar into a Las Vegas slot machine -e]
